All Things Vintage

Why is it we talk about the weather so much?

Have you ever noticed that when we greet someone who lives far away we ask how the weather is where they are?

Or you see someone in the store you haven’t seen in awhile and you talk about the weather because you aren’t sure what to talk about?

We are a funny kind. But I like being a part of the human kind 🙂

So, how’s the weather where you are? Here in Delaware we’ve had lots of rain and gray days.

The older lady I took care of for 18 years used to say that we needed the rain, the gray skies and the rest from growth in order to have a beautiful spring.

Yeah, I like being part of that kind of human. One who sees good and beauty in all kinds of weather.

Let that sink in if you are going through a difficult time in your life right now. There’s a life lesson if you look deep.

  1. This is a fantastic post, Cindy!
    Thank you so much for sharing my “Vintage Finds” post. I truly appreciate it!

    1. You are most welcome Marieza!

  2. Great podcast 🤣. Thanks!

  3. Such a sweet lesson and one we could all use right now, Cindy! Thanks so much for including my post in your features this week. It’s really kind of you. We live on a tiny island in Florida (it rains a lot) and sometimes it rains so hard it knocks out your internet. I used to get frustrated by it because I had so much work I needed to get done. But now I take it as an opportunity to rest, read, pick up a new craft or just sit and appreciate the moment. They don’t last long so you have to grab them where you can. Sending you lots of hugs and thank yous, CoCo

    1. That sounds like a lot of rain CoCo! Sometimes we need something to help us to slow down and enjoy things like reading or crafting. I sure need the gentle push to slow down! The lack of internet and all that rain can be such a blessing. Thanks for stopping by with your encouragement! I appreciate it so much. 🥰

  4. Cindy, that rolling pin as a towel holder is adorable. You have such great ideas, my friend.
